More Financial Aid Needed 
Progress in the Alumni Association 
has been greatly affected by the small 
return from paid memberships dur- 
ing the past year. It is hoped that 
with the changing conditions more 
Alumni will contribute something 
toward the support of their associa- 
tion during the ensuing year. 

The amount of loyalty an Alumnus 
shows to his Alma Mater is not always 
judged by his monetary contributions. 
It is, however, vitally necessary that 
the association have funds with which 
to properly carry on in order to stimu- 
late more interest and loyalty in the 
University and association. Last year 
the number of paid memberships were 
not sufficient to meet the current ex- 
It was, therefore, necessary 
to u ings account of the asso- 

ciation to satisfactorily meet these 
obligations. Such as this cannot 
continue, for it would not be long be-

J. ENOS RAY, '92 

For the second time in the history of 
the Alumni Association, J. Enos Ray, 
'92, has been chosen president. His 
first term as president of the associa- 
tion was from 1902 to 1904. 

Mr. Ray stands among those Alumni 
who have gained reputable distinction 
as a leader. He has been prominent in 
many local, county, and State affairs. 
Mis ability has gained for him many 
responsible positions; such as president 
of the Prince George's County Bank 
and Trust Co., chairman of the Demo- 
cratic State Central Committee, and 
collector of internal revenue. He has 
also been a member of the Maryland 
State Legislature. 

The association looks forward to a 
great year under his able leadership. 
Since Alumni Day he has been ill, but 
we are now glad to report a marked 


The new University Hospital in 
Baltimore is rapidly nearing comple- 
tion, and there is considerable need of 
funds for proper equipment. A cam- 
paign under the auspices of the Medical 
Alumni Association is now being con- 
ducted. All Alumni of the University 
are asked to contribute whatever 
amount they wish. It is a worthy 
project and its success is of mutual 
interest to every Alumnus. Send your 
contribution to the Medical School, 
Lombard and Greene Sts., Baltimore, 
Maryland, or to the Alumni Office, 
College Park.

The Alumni Office has Keen notified 
of several vacancies with the Hoover

Address Senior Class 

(Continued from Pagt 1 i 

grees by Dr. R. A. Pearson, presides 
of the University, as 5000 peopli 
jammed the huge Ritchie Coliseun 
for the ceremonies. Reverend Cole 
man N evils, S. J., president ol 
Georgetown University, delivered th( 
invocation, and the Reverend John J. 
Bunting of Crisfield, Maryland, deliv- 
ered the benediction. 

In his address, Governor Ritchie 
described his long love for the Uni- 
versity and his hope that the gradu- 
ates would "go forth into the world 
guided by the light of Providence, 
and would remember always the spiri*" 
of tolerance and democratic govern- 
ment," which he said, "is Maryland'- 

In remarks made prior to grantinj 
the degrees, President Pearson ex 
pressed the belief that a college educa- 
tion should lead to an appreciation 
of the finer things of life, and said that 
in his opinion, this spirit of apprecia 
tion had been dulled somewhat by the 
effect of uneducated use of the radio, 
the cinema, and the novel. 

Honorary Degrees 

Two nationally famous men were the 
recipients of honorary degrees at the 
exercises. They were Dr. Edward 
Starr Judd, surgeon-in-chief of the 
Mayo Clinic at Rochester, Illinois; and 
Joseph Lewis Wheeler, chief libra- 
rian of the Enoch Pratt Free Librar? 
in Baltimore. Dr. Judd received : 
Doctor of Science degree, and Mr 
Wheeler received the degree of Doc 
tor of Letters. 

Fifteen Doctorates and forty-six 
Master's degrees were also awarded

Saunder's Speaks At Banquet 

When the student's publications held 
their annual banquet May 18, a part 
of the program was to recognize the 
twenty-fifth anniversary of the found- 
ing of the student weekly paper, which 
was originally known as the Triangle 
and later changed to The Diamond* 
hark. Senator Millard E. Tydings, 
the first editor, was invited to be the 
guest speaker, but due to pressure of 
of legislative matters it was impossi- 
ble for him to attend. His assistant 
editor on the Triangle, Major O. H. 
Saunder, MO, did the honors for him 
in highly creditable fashion. 

The banquet held in the Italian 
Gardens of the Mayflower Hotel, was 
followed by a dance. More than two 
hundred attended.

Ground has been broken for a build- 
ing program costing approximately 
$500,000 at College Park, which in- 
cludes a new dormitory for women, an 
arts and science building, and re- 
modeling of the dairy building. 

The arts and science building, to be 
named Shoemaker Hall, in honor of 
the late Honorable Samuel M. Shoe- 
maker, chairman of the Board of 
Regents, will be located on the hill in 
front of Gerncaux Hall and facing the 
Engineering Building. This building, 
containing about 8,500 square feet, will 
be erected at a cost of approximately 
$250,000. Research laboratories in 
physics and industrial chemistry as 
well as many needed class rooms and 
office space will be provided. 

Work has also been started on the 
new co-ed's dormitory, located just 
west id' the old reservoir, which will 
accommodate one hundred and twenty 
girls. This structure, costing approxi- 
mately $150,000, will be the third 
building to be added to the women's 
group in the last three years. 

Remodeling of the dairy building, 
while not actually started, will so 
transform the outside appearance that 
it will not look like the same building. 
It is expected that all work will be 
completed by fall.

New Flag Pole For The Campus 

By cooperation of the senior class, 
the Student Government Association 
and the Alumni Association, the Uni- 
versity is to receive the gift of a new 
flag pole. Simple but beautiful em- 
bellishments of low brick walls and 
flagstone walks will form the setting, 
plans for which have been drawn by 
Howard Cutler, architect. The flag 
pole will also have a new location if 
present plans materialize. It will be 
located at a point directly in front of 
the new library and about midway be- 
tween the present site and the 

Plans are to begin the work shortly 
and be completed for the dedicatory 
ceremonies which will be a part of the 
Homecoming Day program this fall, 
November 3, when the University of 
Virginia will be met in football. 

Reveilles Wanted 

Last year the Alumni Association 
ived from the daughters of the late 
Dr. Samuel S. Buckley, '93, his set of 
Reveilles, practically complete from 
the first copies published in 1897 to 
1916. There are, however, a few 
copies missing and the Alumni office 
wishes to complete the set up to date. 
The following copies are desired: 1899, 
1907, 1908, L909, 1912, 1915, 1917, 
1919, L920, L921, and 1922. 

The Alumni Association would 
gratefully appreciate receiving any 
of the above mentioned copies which 
will be an invaluable asset to the rec- 
ords in the Alumni office. Please send 
them to the Alumni Office, College 
Park, Maryland. 




B] n\. 11. ("BUT') Hoi i i i 

WHILE all probably has not boon 
should have boon said 
about Maryland's good year in athlot- 
1-1934, the powers that be in 
the sport realm at College Park al- 
ly are beginning to think about 
the football campaign next fall. 

And when you stop to figure it out. 
Labor Day. the time they start grid 
practice at the colleges in the South- 
ern Conference, is jus: around the cor- 
ner and the aspiring football men soon 
will be toiling back of the steel stands 
of Byrd Stadium. 

But before we talk too much about 
the prospects for football during the 
or other futures in Old 
Lin ell to rli: . 

few words about what happened dur- 
ing recent spring schedules. 

isual, Maryland had its share of 
:>eing victors in 65 per cent of 
varsity sports for the school term. 
and doing some sensational things in 
track and being conspicuous in base- 
ball in the Southern Conference. 

Widrmor In Spotlight 
Karl Widmyer, the Hagerstown flier, 
was the ace of the track team, although 
he had a lot of fast company. Earl 
won both the indoor and outdoor 
ng championships in the Confer- 
. and stepped away from a great 
field to capture the 100-meter title in 
the classy Pennsyhania relay carnival, 
any track marks, though, were 
broken during the year that we are 
g to print a complete new set of 
the records. It will be noted by pe- 
rusing the list that fully half of the old 
marks were smashed during the 1934 
outdoor season. And it might be in* 
cidentally stated here that Coach Epp- 
ley should pilot the best track team 
land has ever boasted during the 
-35 term. 
Burton Shipley's ball team won 
n of eight conference games to be 
the runner-up to North Carolina's title 
team, and the Old Liners chalked up 
14 wins in 19 starts for the entire 
'iule, winning 12 of their last 14 
Navy and Cornell were among

did not measure up to most of the 

k combinations. However, it 

be counted on to be back up there 

next spring.

cus and javelin records and also tossed 
the shot in fine fashion; Coleman 
Headley, another football toter who 
shattered the half-mile mark; Charlie 
Ellinger, another halfback, who is 
about as sweet an attack lacrosse 
player as any one would want to cast 
an eye upon, and Jack Stonebraker, 
football, basket-ball and baseball play- 
er, all of whom hail from within the 
State. They are not the full crop by 

any means, hut they are about the 
most outstanding. 

In all. T'.t numerals were awarded 

freshmen athletes in football, basket- 
ball, boxing, lacrosse, track and tennis. 

94 Gel N arsitj Letters 

A total of 94 letters went to varsity 
athletes during 1933-1934 and 67 n't 
them are due to resume their studies 
when the "hell rings" in September. 

Seven of those who have worn the 

Black and Gold for the last time are 

gridders. Rufus Vincent, John .May- 
hew and Moti Hay ends; Sam Sillier.

and Bob Snyder, hacks, were the casu- 
alties. Sillier, who has another year

at. ami Jack Faber, Berving 

fust year as head coach, and 

Leroy Mackert, who teama up 

with him a- line mentor, should not 
adil more than the customary amount 

of grey hairs. 

Basket-ball Hani Hit 

Basket-ball was the hardest hit by 
• iuatioii. losing four regulars in 
Spencer Chase and Bob Snyder, for- 
ward-; Rufua Vincent, center, and 
and Buckey Buscher, guard. Burton 
Shipley faces quite a problem to keep 
up his average of To per cent wins in 
the 11 years he has tutored the Terps. 
ug was the lightest loser, only 
Harry Carroll, 125-pounder, being lost 
via the diploma route. Tennis lost 
only two men in John Zirckel and Tom 
Wilson, hut they happen to have b 
the aces of the squad. 

Jolts to Shipley extended right 
heavily to his baseball team. Ralph 

Ruble, sensational pitcher; Spencer 
Chase, fust Backer; Willie Wolf, second 
baseman, and Buckey Buscher and 
Willis Benner, outfielder, finishing 
their careers. Steve Physioc, highly 
capable hurler, who was a senior, is 
expected to return. He was out of 
baseball a year so he has another 
m coming to him. 

• lack Faber will miss from his la- 
crosse outfit such ca])able men as Carl 
Pfau, goalie; Hob Snyder, cover point; 
Norwood Sothoron, center; Rufus Vin- 
cent, in home; James Crotty, defense, 
and possibly, Sam Silber, point. Faber 
is hoping that he will have Silber 
on both his grid and stick squads. 

Collectively, though, the athletic 
situation at .Maryland is not one to 
require crying towels for the coaches; 
and, when another resume is made a 
year hence it is safe to say that the Old 
Liners will have gathered in their 
fair share of the laurel wreaths. 

A.1 any rate, they will furnish fight- 
ing and sportsmanlike opposition to a 
lot of powerful foes before the com- 
mencement exercises are held next

Seven Graduates In One Family 

Probably never before in the history 
of the University is there another 
family with as many graduates of the 
University as that of Mr. and Mrs. 
Thomas H. White of College Park. 
In addition to Mr. White, who received 
his M. S. degree in 1915, after serving 
on the experiment staff for several 
years, there have been six sons who 
received degrees from the College 
Park Schools. Herbert White was the 
first, graduating in chemistry in 1911. 
He died in 1917 at Camp Gordon, 
Georgia, while a member of the U. S. 
Army. William H., '13, a graduate in 
entomology, is now chief of the Truck 
Crop Insect Bureau, U. S. Department 
of Agriculture. Albert, '14, completed 
his work in the College of Agriculture 
and is now superintendent, on the 
Eastern Shore, of the Ridgely substa- 
tion of the University's Experiment 
station. Robert, '10, a graduate of chem- 
istry, is now superintendent of the 
Armour Fertilizer plant at Cartaret, 
N. J. Charles E., a member of the 
class of '23, and also a graduate in 
chemistry, is now a professor in that 
department and has received his M. S. 
and Ph. D. degrees. He is also presi- 
dent of Phi Kappa Phi for the 
years 1934-35. Richard O., '34, 
the youngest of the family, completed 
the entomology course this year and 
expects to continue by taking gradu- 
ate work. The last two to graduate 
have been members of Phi Kappa Phi, 
the national honorary scholastic fra- 
ternity. Also the last three named 
have received the James Douglas 
Goddard Memorial Medal offered by 
his sister, Mrs. Anna K. Goddard 
•lames, to a student from Prince 
George's County for excellence in 
scholarship and moral character.

Nichols Medal Awarded 

To H. C. Sherman, '93 

Henry ('. Sherman, '!»:!, Mitchell 
Professor of Chemistry at Columbia 
1 Diversity, received the William H. 
Nichols Medal of the New York sec- 
tion of the American Chemical So- 
ciety at a dinner in his honor at The 
mists' Chili, held March !(. The 
award was made to Dr. Sherman for 
his work, showing that "chemistry, 
through nutrition, may raise the level 
of positive health and increase the 
average length of life." 

Victor K. I.a.Mer, chairman of the 
jury of selection, presented the medal. 
Declaring that Dr. Sherman had 
raised the study of vitamins from an 
an to a science, he said: "By dis- 
covering and popularizing in the best 
sense of the word knowledge about 
chemistry of foods, you enable the 
individual to control his own health 
for his own best interest in a way 
which has never been possible before." 
Lafayette B. Mendel of Yale Univer- 
sity and C. A. Browne of the Bureau 
of Chemistry and Soils, U. S. Depart- 
ment of Agriculture, also spoke in 
praise of Dr. Sherman's work. An 
unusually large crowd (more than 
400) was present. 

Sherman's interest in chemistry be- 
gan under Dr. H. B. McDonnell, pro- 
fessor of chemistry of the Maryland 
Agricultural College now the College 
Park schools of the University, where 
he began as a student in 1889. While 
a student he did not devote his entire 
time to studies as he was a member 
of the first football team at the Col- 
lege Park schools. 

Following graduation in 1893 he 
continued his work in chemistry at 
Columbia University w-here he re- 
ceived his Master's degree in 1896 and 
his Doctor's degree in 1897. He is 
now head of the Chemistry Depart- 
ment at Columbia.

organizers of the College Park schools 
of the University. 


Dickey Poultry Farm 

In the valley of the mountains in 
the state of Washington we find P. S. 
Dickey, '07, a former engineering 
student, now owner and operator of 
prominent "Dickey Poultry Farm." 
Locating his whereabouts was the 
results of the visit by John T. Brad- 
dock and T. Elgie Riggs, of the class 
of 1882, last spring. Both Braddock 
and Dickey are residents of Puyallup, 
Washington, and have been friends

east in 1927, on which trip he visifed 
the Campus and his remarks were: 
"I found the changes startling." Due 
to this visit he persuaded Braddock 
to visit the old Campus the first time 
in 50 years. 

Dickey whose address was unknown 
for sometime went west in 1918 to be- 
come engaged in his new pursuit 
about which he writes as follow: 
"After following engineering pur- 
suits for many years, I have found 
the work I love and am happily lo- 
cated." His success as a poultryman 
has been recognized by the State Col-

Line Almost Intact 

Maryland had to rebuild last fall. 
cially its line, which wound up the 
I season in impressive style. This 
forward wall, which at the finish in- 
cluded five sophomores, will be intact, 
with the exception of Tom Webb, 
center, who left school at the start of 
the second semester in February. 

Otherwise, the only casualties 
among the regulars were Buckey 
Buscher. great defensive back, and 
:s Benner. clever ball-toter and 
pass-receiver. All of the other let- 
ter men to graduate were reserves. 
■ land regulars and near-regu- 
lars due to be on hand are: 

Louis Ennis and Bernie Buscher, 
ends; Ed Minion and Charles Calla- 
han, tackles: John Simpson and 
Brooks Bradley, guards; Dick Nelson, 
Widnv George 

Sachs and Charles Yaeger, backs. 

These, with Webb, Buckey Buscher 
and Benner, played most of Mary- 
land's football in 1933 and it was a 
capable outfit, particularly the line, 
in its last two games. 

Other letter men left from 1933 are 
Harry Gretz, center, who ably backed 
up Webb; William Garrott, and Luther 
Goldman, guards, and Carl Stalfort, 

Sothoron. Farrell Ready

The Alumni Association has sufl 
the loss, through death, of one of its 
eminent Alumni. J. Enos Ray, a mem- 
ber of the class of 1892 and twice 
president of the Alumni Association, 
leaves an enviable record. He has 
stepped from the midst of controversy 
and taken his place among the im- 
mortals, against whom no man can 
speak. There is a sudden and loyal 
silence throughout all the hosts, for 
no man has l>oen more a part of every 
man in the State than J. Enos Ray. 

He had a public mind and gave him- 
self to the service of the people with 
singleness of purpose that will be an 
inspiration to the younger generatons. 
None will go from the midsl of the 
living and leave a sense of deeper 
personal loss than this splendid man, 
this impetuous companion who has b 
tched by death from the intin 
affection of his many frieni

University Offers Winter Course 

A Winter School course will be 
K'iven at the University during the 
ensuing year under the auspices of 
the College of Agriculture and Home 
Economics. The course will open Jan- 
uary 7, and will extend for six weeks. 

The course has been designed to 
meet the needs of persons beyond the 
usual high school age who wish to 
continue their education and at the 
same time continue work at home 
with the least possible interruption. 
The time is short and comes at a sea- 
son when farm work and rural busi- 
ness are least pressing. 

The cost is small, and the course is 
intensive. For the sum of approxi- 
mately $75.00 a comprehensive study 
in various phases of Agriculture, 
Home Economics, and rural social 
study can be secured. Those attend- 
ing a definite planned program for 
four winters may procure a certificate 
of achievement. 

A special effort will be made to 
acquaint students with the applica- 
tion of the more recent scientific find- 
ings and to assist them in making 
contact with leaders in work in which 
they are interested.

Levin Houston, '98, 

Has Interesting Career 

From baseball manager, through en- 
gineering fields, to city manager of 
Fredericksburg, Va., is the life of 
Levin J. Houston, '98. Houston came 
to College Park Schools, then Mary- 
land Agriculture College, in 1894, and 
took a classical course to please his 
parents, but his inclination was en- 
gineering. In his senior year, he man- 
aged the first baseball team to take an 
extended trip through the state of Vir- 
ginia, and also the first baseball team 
to win the Intercollegiate Champion- 
ship of Maryland and District of Co- 
lumbia. Following his graduation 
from M. A. C, he was eager to take 
engineering, so to Cornell he went, 
where he finished in 1901, receiving 
a degree in civil engineering. 

Becomes City .Manager 

Houston's next affiliation was with 
the Canadian Pacific R. R., where he 
remained but a few years, changing 
to the Chesapeake and Ohio. Find- 
ing out that railroad engineering 
was not his calling, he turned to mu- 
nicipal engineering and went to Balti- 
more City, where he was with the city 
department for several years. Later 
he entered private business. He was 
soon called from his private endeavors 
to the city of Fredericksburg, Va., to 
act as city manager, where he has 
been for over 16 years. His accom- 
plishments have been noteworthy and 
many cities have sought his council. 
When manager of the baseball 
team at college, Houston recalled a 
very interesting incident, when on the 
team's southern trip which had a 
record of 3 wins and 3 loses. The 
most outstanding win was from V. M. 
I. Here Houston and the Maryland 
boys were received so cordially and 
courteously by the cadets and institu- 
tional authorities that he has always 
had the highest esteem for V. M. I. 
He met General Ship, then commander 
of the institution, who was the leader 
of the V. M. I. cadets in the battle of 
New Market during the war between 
the states. The cadet manager of

Ferps Yield Only 4 First 
Downs In Winning, Losing 

PLAl IN t. it^ third game ol the m< 
bob October 13 at Annapolis, Mary- 
Bad oatgained N.i\> 349 yards to 180, 
jut lost 13 to t>. when tumbling 
lUowed the Middies to take a 16 to u 
ead in the first hall. It was all .Man - 
and in the second naif. Each scored 
» o touchdowns, a field goal bj Cutter 
H'ini; the NaT] margin. 

MARYLAND'S Old Liners allowed 
only four first downs to be made 
st them in their first two games 
in defeating St. John's ipolis, 

id to 0, at College Park on September 
b, ana losing to Washington and Lee 
Kington, to 7, on October 6. 

The Terps did well enough against 
St. John's the losers getting both of 
:heir rirst downs in their own territory 
• the fourth quarter. 

They made nine rirst downs to 
Washington and Lee's two, outrushing 
and outpassing the Generals, but los- 
ing out when a poor kick gave the 
Lexingtonians a scoring break in the 
second period. The Generals then got 
their only two rirst downs to register 
the lone touchdown. 

A muddy field handicapped the 
lighter Terps. However, the Old 
Liners were inside the 15 yard line 
four times in the last half but just 
couldn't quite make it. 

Maryland typified its main strength 
in the Washington and Lee game by 
nsing the following players: 

Louis Ennis and Charlie Ellinger. 
left end: Ed Minion and John Birk- 
land, left tackle; Al Farrell, Stew 
v and Brooks Bradley, left 
guard; Bill Andorka, center; John 
Simpson and Charlie Zulick, right 
guard; Carl Stalfort and Charlie 
Callahan, right tackle; Bernie Buscher 
and Vic Willis, right end; Norwood 
Bothoron, Ear! Widmyer and Jack 
Btonebraker, quarter; Bill Guckeyson 
and Dick Nelson, left half; George 
Sachs and Coleman Headley, right 
half; John Gormley and Ed Daly, 

Only McCaw, Simpson, Sothoron, 
Widmyer and Nelson are seniors and 
Ellinger, Willis. Zulic, Birkland, 
Andorka, Stonebraker, Guck« 
Headley. Gormley and Daly are play- 
ing their first year of varsity foot- 
ball. All of the others are juniors.

Alumni Will Find Florida, 
Virginia Tilts Attractive 

TWO Old Line football games, to 
which alumni from all over the 
State and from other points are expec 

ted to Bock, aii' the big intersect ional 

contest with Florida in the Baltimore 
Stadium on October 27, at 2:80, and 
the Homecoming tilt with Virginia at 
College Park, on November 3, starting 

at the same hour. 

Both should be highly attractive 
and colorful contests and the T< 
should be pretty nearly on a 60 
basis with Florida, and fully an even 
< boil e w ith the Cavaliei s. Bj the 
time the 'Gators and Virginia are met, 
the Terps should be travelling along 
at a fast pace, as all the experts In 
about have forecast that "Maryland 
will have a November team." 

Maryland and Virginia have been 
battling quite a spell, the first real 
tilt between them being in 1919, when 
the Terps won as Maryland State, 
13 to 0. They have been opposing as 
Southern Conference rivals since 1925, 
with Virginia winning four times, 
Maryland three, with two ties. 

They are all even for the Millard 
Tydings' trophy, put into competition 
in 1926, with three w r ins apiece and 
two deadlocks. 

Florida and the Old Liners have met 
but twice. The Terps invaded Jack- 
sonville in December, 1927, and, al- 
though outplaying the 'Gators by a 
goodly margin, lost, 6 to 7. Last 
December Florida had the edge in a 
hotlv contested game at Tampa, 19 to 

Both games will be worth lenghty 
trips to witness and the alumni at 
various points are lining up to be on 
hand. Be among them.

Alumni I o Be Organized 

Throughout The State 

A concentrated efforl \a now being 
made by the Alumni Office to have the 
alumni throughout the State organized 
by • .iiul cities, i ■ I mi- 

nua ed to k> v <' hia ■ 

tion in getting these organizations 
■ ted. It is Mt that it there is one 
particular place designated in the prin- 
cipal town of each county where Mary- 
land alumni will eat lunch on B certain 
day, that eventually a personal con- 
witb every alumnus in that coun- 
ts or city will be perfected. This is con- 
ceded the best way to get interest and 
loyalty uf the highest degree among 
the alumni. 

For the present, the day for these 

gatherings has been Bet for noon, on 
the first Friday in each month. A 
committee in your locality will drop 
you a card designating the place, and 

it is hoped that as many as possible 
will attend these gatherings. There will 
not he a set charge for the lunch, as 
arrangements will he such that you 
can order to suit yourself. Come to 
these gatherings and get acquainted 
with your fellow-alumni whom you do 
not know, and get better acquainted 
with those you do know.
